Workshop website: http://securityworkshop.ece.iastate.edu



PURPOSE:



Cyber security is a research area of both theoretical and practical significance. In recent years, interest has increased in the field of security of distributed computing systems, since securing a large-scale networked system becomes a great challenge, which include the following: specification, analysis, and design of protocols, access control mechanisms, mobile code security, denial-of-service attacks, trust management, modeling of information flow and its application to confidentiality policies, system composition, and covert channel analysis.



The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for continued activity in this area, to allow interaction of security researchers and developers with the distributed systems communities, and to give attendees of ICDCS 2005 an opportunity to network with experts in cyber security.  We will focus our program on issues related to important properties of system security, such as measurability, sustainability, affordability, and usability in distributed computing systems.



TOPICS OF INTEREST:



We are interested not only in the newest results in computer security theories, but also in the more exploratory presentations that examine open questions and raise fundamental concerns about existing theories.  Possible topics include, but are not limited to:



  * Distributed Access Control and Trust Management


  * Key Management and Authentication


  * Privacy and Anonymity


  * Benchmark and Security Analysis


  * Security for Peer to Peer systems and Grid Computing Systems


  * Secure Multicast and Broadcast


  * Secure multiparty and two-party computations


  * Computer and Network Forensics


  * Denial-of-service Attacks and Countermeasures


  * Secure E-Commerce/E-Business


  * Security Verification


  * Distributed Database Security


  * Digital Rights Management


  * Secure Mobile Agents and Mobile Code


  * Intrusion detection


  * Viruses, Worms, and Other Malicious Code


  * Security in ad-hoc and sensor networks


  * World Wide Web Security
